I knew that keeping a home clean is hard work, but this constant catch-up-to-get-ahead housework is exhausting! Add to that the busyness of getting everything ready for Christmas, and this mama is T.I.R.E.D. Tomorrow is another day, though, and the schedule is otherwise empty.
Also, as I was writing this, I could hear the dreaded sound of paper bag ripping in the background. My recycle bag was emptied and being shredded. Nooooo!!!!!! The issue has been addressed, and back to blogging!
On the ninth day of Christmas cleaning, here’s what I got done:
Nine Three decorations – a 2013 calendar set out, a few candles… and I need to go shopping, digging through the basement, or get creative!
Eight items (minimum) recycled – from the night stands
Seven old things tossed – also from the night stands
Four containers filled/emptied –
Three surfaces cleared – Two bedside tables and progress on the desk.
Two floors ready to be vacuumed (tomorrow?) – around the bed
And a kitchen with grand ambitions for tomorrow.
